Good morning, fellow bookworms. It is ‘Hump Day’ Wednesday which means we are halfway through the working week (if you’re at work) and it is time for WWW Wednesday! A weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words, which simply involves answering the following Three Ws:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
A cold, grey week has passed since my last WWW post and now let’s delve into the books I’ve been worming my way into, snuggled up at home, recently:
~ Currently Reading ~
I have just started reading the romantic suspense, Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart, another book leftover from my Autumn 2020 TBR, which is the first of Stewart’s novels to be published in 1955. It is good to finally be reading this author again, as it feels an age since I read The Moonspinners. So far this promises more of the sun-drenched adventures I long for, as the widowed Charity Selborne and her old friend Louise set off on a driving holiday through France. 🌞
I have also continued dipping in and out of The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places by Neil Oliver: his account of what makes these islands so special, told through the places that have witnessed the unfolding of our history. I have now reached place number (5) Céide Fields, County Mayo.💂♂️
~ Recently Finished ~
On my lazy Sunday, I finished off my thoroughly enjoyable re-read of the Chivalric romance, Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, that chronicles the adventures of the Saxon knight, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe and his lady-love, Rowena; as Prince John schemes to take his brother, Richard the Lionheart’s throne. At 519 pages this is a long book, that I took the time to savour, and the more I read, the more detail of this glorious Medieval adventure started coming back to me. 🏰
~ Reading Next ~
If I am honest, I am not 100% sure what I’ll pick up next, but I think it will probably be one of these Kindle reads: the sci-fi romance, The Memory Tree by John A. Heldt, the second book in the time-travel series, Carson Chronicles; or the Norse mythological adventure, The Testament of Loki by Joanne M. Harris, the third tale about this famous trickster I will have read by Harris. Ooo choices, choices! 🤪
That’s it for now, folks! All that is left to say is take care, happy reading, and please feel free to share a link in the comments below for your own WWW post, so we can come check it out! I hope to see you again soon for some more bookish chat! Happy ‘Hump-Day’! 👋📚😃
Now I’d love to hear from you: Have you read any of these? What have you been reading? What do you think I should read next?
